AC '08 DJ Spotlight: Draconum

Anthrocon features some of the most talented DJs in the Furry Fandom, but who are they really? We'll be taking some time in coming weeks to let you know, in their own words, what makes them tick and what you can expect from their sets.

Next up, returning for his second year as well, Draconum!

Shipping items to the convention (Fursuiters and Dealers, take note)

The procedure (and fees) for shipping items to the convention have changed. If you are a dealer and wish to ship your wares to Anthrocon, please ship them directly to the Convention Center. If you are not a dealer but want to ship items (such as a fursuit) to Anthrocon, please ship them directly to the Westin Hotel. All dealer packages will be delivered straight to the dealer's table; others will be delivered to Anthrocon Operations office. A receipt and storage fee will apply to all shipments.

If you plan to have a party at the Westin...

...it is important that we reiterate the rules regarding parties. Naturally our attendees want to get together and chat after hours, but please remember that we cannot set up "quiet floors" and "party floors." That means that all floors are "quiet floors." Any noise must be kept to a minimum, and gatherings may not spill out into the hallways. After all, other folks are trying to sleep.

If you want to have a party without such restrictions, though, we have a suggestion...

Charity Auction seeking art for promo item (2008 edition)

Due to the success of last year's Charity Auction promotional giveaway to donors, we're going to continue the new tradition again this year. People who donate to the Anthrocon Charity Auction to support Pittsburgh Parrot Rescue in 2008 will again receive a small, limited edition gift featuring exclusive art, while supplies last.

Speaking of which: do you want to make a donation, but still can't decide what to offer? We need artwork for our promotional item! We're looking for a small, sharp, simple, unique, and visually-appealing graphic for Anthrocon 2008 as an imprint for this item. To submit artwork for consideration, please use the following guidelines:

- Should be based on either parrots or this year's theme: It's A Jungle Out There!
- Should be designed as a logo/emblem/imprint style (see http://i30.tinypic.com/bx66f.gif for example).
- Must include the text: "Anthrocon 2008" somewhere in the logo.

Some important information (and requests) from the Westin

I've been talking with Michaela (who rocks) and Jaime (who rules) at the Westin. Our kind hosts were very pleased with us last year, but as always Anthrocon strives for continual improvement and I was anxious to hear from them how we can be even better guests in 2008. The ladies gave me the following, which I urge all Anthrocon attendees to read and heed:

Anthrocon Dealer's Room: All Applications Processed!

Hi kids!

This is a follow-up to our earlier announcement regarding the room sellout; it did in fact fill nearly to the breaking point--quite a few rounds of human Tetris were played, but we got everyone in without having to reduce many to less than what they were after.

We have sent out applications to all dealers who provided a valid, functioning email address. While we do our best to get all of them to work, some inevitably did bounce, and we were unable to communicate with those dealers. If you have not received a notification of assignment from the Dealer's Room Staff, please notify us straightaway via email, even if you're sure you've already been assigned--there are often issues we need to communicate, and not having an email address hinders the process.

Steel City news

I just talked to Chris, the bosslady at the Steel City Diner. We've got two exciting bits of news to pass along:

1) They'll once again have special Anthrocon shirts on sale. A portion of the proceeds from the T-shirt sales will go to Anthrocon's charity beneficiary this year, Pittsburgh Parrot Rescue.

2) They're planning to stay open 24 hours for the duration of our convention!
